Venue: Anglia Ruskin University (Marconi Building)  |  City: Chelmsford, United Kingdom

A hands-on Science and Technology masterclass for students aged 12-14, taking place in the school holidays at Anglia Ruskin University.

Please register through Eventbrite. We ask for a contribution of £14 towards the cost of running this event.

Do you imagine how science and medicine could improve the way your body works? Can you imagine how understanding the natural world helps us improve our aircraft, or whether plastics are a good or bad thing? Could you imagine how virtual reality may affect our future lives?

If the answer is YES to any of the above, and you are aged 12-14, then Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society (CSES) invites you to Imagine!

Discussing how we have adapted the principles of the basic tools (machines) man has used through the ages to design the machines we use today, and by exploring the basics of these machines we will examine the principles of mechanical advantage and simple applied mechanics.

Also... why are there so many different designs of bridge, what determines which design is used and why doesn’t a bridge fall down just under its own weight?

Gravity, forces and the power of the triangle help us understand, and see how a paper bridge can be made stronger by adding... paper!

This masterclass is suited to science, technology and engineering students aged 12-14 wanting to find out more about mechanics and structures.
